Welcome to the story of ‘Short Story’.
Creation of Short Story began in the warmer months of 2008, by co founders Will and Caro. Drawing upon their many inspiring visits to Melbourne’s prestigious artisan markets, both Will and Caro joined forces grasping their life long artistic talents to create handmade captivating interior artworks that draw upon their unique personalities and backgrounds. Each design with in the Short Story range uses the fusion of modern art and traditional Eastern paper techniques. Short Story’s aim for the final result is to give depth and a story behind each design.
